This Documentary Explains The Crazy Reality Of Living On Mars

Do you want to go to space? Of course you do, and the fun thing is you (probably) can — if you have lots of money. The good news is that space tourism is getting cheaper and easier, so it's entirely likely that you might be able to afford it one day. But you probably don't want to say goodbye to Earth quite yet.

Motherboard just released its latest documentary, and it asks a very simple question: When will humans live on Mars? The answer is sort of "It's complicated", but for now we need better technology to make life on Mars feasible for extended periods of time. Regardless, the peek into the burgeoning space tourism industry is fascinating and getting into the nitty gritty of what it would actually take to colonise Mars is definitely worth 25 minutes of your time.

Also, space is awesome, and this little movie is full of awesome space stuff. Watch the whole thing above. [Motherboard]
